Kenan Thompson Talks Reconnecting With Kel Mitchell, Possible 'Good Burger' Sequel
Kenan Thompson discussed the possibility of a Good Burger sequel when he visited Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday.
A fan called into the show and asked Thompson if he and Kel Mitchell plan to make a sequel to their 1997 comedy movie that evolved from their hit sketch on Nickelodeon's All That.
"We've been talking about it for a long time. We've had meetings about it, so it's in the higher powers' hands cause we've both said that we're down to do it," he said about the potential sequel.
Thompson also revealed that the show and movie's creator Dan Schneider was responsible for him and Mitchell reconnecting and ultimately doing a Good Burger bit for The Tonight Show in 2015.
"A friend of his was working on The Tonight Show and they had that idea to do the reunion and he reached out to me and then I called Kel and we talked," he said. "We played phone tag for three days, but we finally talked and we were like, 'Yeah, we might as well do it' or whatever. It was a nice 40-minute conversation that we had."
"We hadn't spoken in a long time," he continued. "It was nice to reconnect because it was like picking up right where we left off." He shared that the two now talk "all the time."
Another caller asked Thompson who was the worst-behaved musical guest to ever appear on Saturday Night Live. The caller noted that Bill Hader said the answer was Justin Bieber, though he wondered if Kanye West is the new titleholder.
"That's a great question. I mean, it's up to everyone's opinion," he said. "I don't know. I didn't really have that much of a bad time with Bieber. I like him."
"Kanye was super far off the ripper type of weirdness," he said about West. "The ripper of weirdness is like here and he was way over there."
West most recently appeared on the 44th season premiere of the show. The rapper donned a "Make America Great Again" hat and gave a pro-Trump speech after the TV broadcast ended.
